FPLibrary: a Library of Operators for ``Real'' Arithmetic on FPGAs
FPLibrary is a VHDL library that describes arithmetic operators (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and square root) for two formats of representation of real numbers: floating-point, and logarithmic number system  . These formats are parametrized in precision and range.
It has been extended in 2005 by the addition of floating-point logarithm and exponential operators  , which exhibit 10x speedup when compared with the processor. FPLibrary is the first hardware library to offer parametrized hardware architectures for such elementary functions.
